Ever17 -the out of infinity- visual novel artist Yū Takigawa announced on her official website that she will release a hugging pillow cover of Ever17's Tsugumi Komachi character. She is featured in both white negligee and a black wedding dress that Takigawa designed for the Ever17 10th Anniversary Fanbook that was released last year at Japan's Winter Comic Market 2012. Fans voted for the black wedding dress outfit on Takigawa's Pixiv account, with other possible choices for the other side of the pillow being Sara Matsunaga, Sara and Tsugumi together, Yū Tanaka, or Sora Akanegasaki.
The 1,600 mm (62 inch) x 500 mm (20 inch) pillow cover made out of 2 way tricot will cost 13,000 yen (about US$130), and will be sold at the Summer Comic Market (Summer Comiket) in Tokyo, Japan on August 10 at the table of Takigawa's Love Pockets circle.
The original Ever17 video game was released by game developer KID in August, 2002 in Japan, and was later released by now-defunct Hirameki International in 2005 for North American release. Asami Imai sung the opening theme for the 2008 PSP port of the game, and Kokomi (Asriel) performed the theme song for the complete remake of the game for the Xbox 360 in 2011, which included new routes, completely re-done graphics and re-recorded voices. A manga adaptation illustrated by Chigusa Umetani ran on Enterbrain's Famitsu Comic Clear website from 2011 to 2012 with two compiled volumes.
